武: The Chinese word that roughly translate to martial art or art of fighting (normally 2 words are use to describe martial art, but the single word is also used).  If you separate the top from the bottom, the top look like 戈 and the bottom look like 止.  The top part in Chinese means fight and the bottom means stop.  So the single word actually give the meaning of how to stop a fight.  This also goes well with the teaching of WuShu, you learn to stop a fight not to start one.
